5  Fun Newspaper Ideas for Kids

Coming up with that hit article can be a challenge.  Some newspaper writers have to rewrite their article over and over in order to get it just right.  Below are 5 steps that will help you to write the perfect story or make the perfect paper!

Choose topics that you love – if you write about things that you love you will find that you will love working on your paper.  If you decide to write about things that you don’t really enjoy than soon enough you will stop working on the paper because you are bored.  Try one of the topics below:

  • Friends
  • Band
  • Summer Vacations
  • Pets in your neighborhood
  • Family newsletter
  • A hobby (knitting, scrapbooking, bike repair)

Focus on your audience – remember that your newspaper is for your audience.  If your audience is just you and a friend than you can make it personal!  If your newsletter is for your family than remember to write about them also.  People love to hear their name.  Try putting in the names of other people . . . this will also get them to read your newspaper.

A good title can go a long way – the first thing people will see is the title of your article.  Make sure it is short, catchy, and makes them want to learn more.

People love pictures – a picture really is worth one thousand words.  Find pictures that help to tell your story.  This is way most if not all of our newspaper templates for kids have places for images.

Try interviewing – having a hard time coming up with a story? Try interviewing someone who knows about your topic.  They will love talking about their interests and will share the story with their friends.
